It's not exactly a secret...

It's not exactly a secret that I suck at this whole blogging thing. But I bet that my readers would rather me spend time writing stories than random blog posts anyway so I guess I don't feel THAT bad. ;)
As it is, I figured I'd pop on over here and just give a little update about what my writing "schedule" looks like for the rest of the year and into 2015 (is it blowing anyone else's mind that 2015 is right around the corner?). I use the term "schedule" very loosely because I don't necessarily have a strict one. It's more of a guideline really. :)

Currently I'm writing Sea Swept. I'm pretty sure Riptide (the short story prequel) is finished (just waiting on first round edits for that one). I'm about 10K away from my typical "First Draft Word Count Goal" and only halfway through writing the actual STORY. So I think it's safe to say that Sea Swept will be longer than Lark. I'm weirdly excited about that.
Next on my agenda though are as follows:

Forget Me Not--I keep putting this one off and I don't know why because it's half way through and I really love this story. I think it's so different from what I've previously written that's it more challenging for me to write and I want to do it justice hence my slow progress on it. My main goal for 2015 will be to finish that story. This will be a YA contemporary romance. The storyline came to me while I was working with foster kids. I was fascinated by how different every foster family is and how that affects the kids in their care.

Nightingale--If you follow my author page on Facebook I'm sure you've seen some casual mentions of this project. This will be a Lark spin-off and will feature Grey, Adele and Klaus. Originally I wanted to write it from entirely Grey's POV but now I'm wondering if I should include Adele's. This is still in the very early stages. I know what the main storyline will be, but I haven't decided whether this will be a stand alone or if it might turn into its own trilogy.

After that, I have two contemporary romances brewing in the back of my mind and it always seems like whenever I finish one story, another one pops in my head (which is GOOD) so I don't have any doubt that there will be many more down the line. :)

So here is the rundown for 2014-2015:

1. Sea Swept
2. Riptide
3. Forget Me Not
4. Nightingale
(though honestly #3 and #4 might switch depending on my mood)

What are you most looking forward to reading from me in the future?
